Campbell's Russian Dwarf Hamsters "can" get along together. Best when introduced young though.. Syrians (which include Teddy Bear/Black Bear/Golden/etc) can NOT get along.
Are you looking for pet only or to breed?
7 could work..of a same sex.. but most likely to work if you get them all as recently weaned.

I would not allow them to be near each other. Rats are predators in nature..if it wanted to, it could QUICKLY kill your hamster. Plus, there are some illnesses rats can carry that could be transmitted to your hamster.

No...do not put them together.The rat will most likely harm/kill the hammies.
